If you're an entrepreneur, the odds of securing a meeting are not in your favor but from the VC side, what are the chances you're overlooking a game-changing investment simply because it is outside of your network?
Warm introductions are still the best way to meet an investor, however, scrappy venture capitalists know that ideas can come from anywhere - including from outside of their network.

Digital, mobile, jumping into the early-stage investment arena, marketing lessons you can learn from an investment bank + Pizza Hut plus the date for the next Meet The Innovators at Apple (KIND Snacks CEO is the interviewee, so get the date on your calendar).
Mobile is eating the world and adtech is the new big brother. Identity, personalization and retargeting are the advertising tech trends to watch – the focus is all on knowing you the consumer, better than a self-help book knows you or you know yourself. Last week I moderated the “AppTech: When ...

"And then everyone drove off alone in their Teslas to buy stuff on their smartphone, sell their bitcoins, and pore over their binders full of women."

"Have you had Andre's Ribs?"  - Andre Moore of Andre's Ribs is an injured veteran who is re-inventing himself by turning a life-long dream into a business. Andre's ribs are made in the southern-style tradition along with his own creative southwestern flair. Get ready for Andre's Ribs - his Kickstarter launches on Monday.  Have I had Andre's Ribs? Yes! The ribs (watch out Franklin BBQ) and the passionate, determined founder, are why I'm getting behind this Kickstarter. ##AR2015 #AndresRibsABQ

Story
Tagline
Business Growth Strategist - Entrepreneur - CEO - Mentor. Hey SiriusXM Radio, give me a show! #GetAdrienneonSiriusXMRadio
Introduction
I'm that chick that goes in the exit door and out the entrance door. That way they see me coming and going. 

But seriously, I am passionate about people growing. Nothing makes me sadder than to see people who think they are limited by their surroundings, the economy or a bad situation. I live to show people that they can grow and thrive in ANY economy, and to never settle.

I'm building an empire dedicated to providing people with tools to grow their business in any economy, with brand extensions in media and publishing (Empower Me! Corporation). I ran a recruitment consulting firm specializing in providing recruitment services for the portfolio companies of venture capital firms. 

I'm a serial entrepreneur with multiple ventures. My most recent launch was Curvy Girl Closet.

I am currently serving as a Mentor for the Straight Shot Accelerator Program in Omaha, NE, which is an accelerator dedicated to rapidly developing technology startups in e-commerce and SAAS.

I love my life and wouldn't change a thing. I'm a woman on a mission. I'm that person who makes it happen when people and circumstances tell me it can't be done.

Did I mention I'm also a writer, speaker and instructor? Well, now you know.
Bragging rights
My dog Jose Cuervo was photographed & appeared in Black Enterprise Magazine. I'm the newest Mentor for the Straight Shot Accelerator Program, My book No, You Can't Pick My Brain spent 3 weeks at the #1 spot for Hot New Releases on Amazon. My radio show was selected Top 100 Heavy Hitter Radio Shows for Small Business by Small Business Trends. MSNBC deemed me a "Jobs Expert". My "Brain Picking" article (now a book available on Amazon, in paperback, Kindle & Nook too) on Forbes got me selected by BlogHer as a Voice of the Week. And I placed in the Top10 Savviest in Social Media by Startup Nation. There's other stuff, but then I'd look like I'm bragging.
